Toppling Goliath Brewing Co and the bicycling community are like two peas in a pod – they both get that good things take time and effort. Whether it's crafting the perfect brew or tackling tough trails on a bike, they're all about enjoying the ride and sharing good times with friends.

Decorah-based, Toppling Goliath Brewing Co is Iowa's largest brewery and many beer aficionados make the trek to Decorah for special release events and their beers are well known in the craft beer world.

Toppling Goliath has earned a formidable reputation in the craft beer scene for its mastery of hazy beers and barrel-aged stouts. Pseudo Sue and its imperial counterpart, King Sue, stand out as iconic hazy pale ales, celebrated for their juicy hop profiles and cloud-like appearance. On the other end of the spectrum, Toppling Goliath's barrel-aged stouts, exemplified by legendary releases such as Kentucky Brunch Brand Stout and Assassin, showcase the brewery's expertise in crafting rich, complex, and sought-after dark brews, solidifying its status as a powerhouse in the world of craft beer.
